This park is used by commuters, leisure and families on a regular basis. A beatific vast and open space in the city of Amsterdam. Sunday sees families getting their fresh air; taking this quite seriously. A great place for kids or adults. I particularly enjoyed people watching!

No, quite literally, I feel quite revitalised every time I'm here! Even if you don't join the masses cycling or jogging around the park, it's nice to sit down and watch the world go by. Sometimes it does make you wish London parks were like this too. Hyde Park might just be getting to that level!

Walked through the park at night, has several entrances, ponds, bike path and large walking path. Felt very safe with people running, walking, skate boarding, dog walking and riding their bikes. Their are large lanterns throughout the park. Clean and serene, there is a Restuarant in the middle and the large beautiful Restuarant and bar at the entrance near Leisplan.

One of the largest, most incredible parks I have ever been to! In the middle of a bustling city, this place is out of this world! With things happening on every corner, it's not a surprise to see why the locals love it so much! Perfect when you want a day of sightseeing but with nothing too strenuous. I was... More

Really nice park to wander through and spend a bit of time in to get away from the busy streets! Loads of joggers and cyclists but plenty space for everone and overall a great spot to chill out and wander around.

Lovely park for a wander around. There are lots of birds and pretty spots to take in the lovely views of the water and trees. We went in winter but I'm sure this would be a perfect place to have a picnic in summer.

This is one great park. Hire a bike and ride around this treey and very large park in the middle of Amsterdam.

It is what it is- a welcome green space in a city! Nice to stroll through after walking around the busy city and it's handy to cut in through as an alternative route at times. It was close enough to where we were staying so we walked through parts of it a few times.
